“Worst Japanese food in Edmonton”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Finding a good Japanese restaurant in Edmonton is next to impossible. JV is dirty and the food is just so so.

“Excellent Experience”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Japanese cooking, food is not known to us so, an invite to this restaurant was met with a degree of skepticism which, quickly disappeared as soon as we arrived.
From being greeted at the door, to the friendly conversation at the bar while waiting for a suitable table, to the exceptionally helpful and friendly waitress service at the table to the cook who came to cook at our table to the actual food ~ this was a FANTASTIC experience.

This is good food with "entertainment". Our group consisted of ages 2 ~to~ 65 and everyone had a wonderful experience. The prices wee probably a little on the 'high side' - but, by the time you add the Entertainment component, it was well worth the money paid.

This is probably not the place to go to, too often. That would take away from its 'novelty' but, as an -occasional 'special occasion' destination ~ this is THE place to go to!

Even though the place was full to capacity, our wait-staff went out of their way to make us feel like we were the only people of importance in the building. Fast, efficient, friendly service wins my vote every time.
This was one of those occasions where I went out of my way to leave a hefty tip - the staff deserved it, they made our 'special' occasion ~ SPECIAL

“Love the atmpsphere & menu!”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Love that the food is cooked right in front of you and you are able to chat with the people at your table should you join another group. Our chef was very entertaining and cooked our food to perfection!

Food is awesome. Chefs are entertaining. Parking is a little difficult. But I always enjoy going there and it is always a treat. Love the birthday pictures.
